Natalie's Score: 91/100
This dry Italian red wine has lots of racy. mouth-watering acidity. Aromas of dark fruit and toasty oak. Dusty, savoury, classic Italian red wine with aromas of lovely tart black cherries, cedar smoke, violets. Nicely integrated nuances of oak and vanillin. This robust red has a good grip on the palate so decant for 1-2 hours then enjoy with prime rib.
Vino Nobile Di Montepulciano Riserva food pairings: roast beef, grilled venison ribs, venison steak.

Reviews and Ratings
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Medium ruby colour with a garnet hue. Deep staining tears with aromas of stewed fruit, dried herbs dark chocolate, coffee, graphite and pencil shavings. Flavours offer cherry, blackberries , tar, pencil graphite and shaving notes again at the end with some heat. Also a touch of red grilled bell peppers. Medium plus acidity, body, tannins and finish. Smooth, well rounded and spicy. Decant up to 2 hrs before. Rich stewed beef dishes and creamy strong cheeses and sun dried tomato/olive tapenade will complement this wine wonderfully. Tasted October 2017 - vintages release.
|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Bright ruby red in color with ripe plums, cherry, coffee, spice, tobacco, mushrooms and violet on the nose and palate. A hint of heat on the mid-palate, well balanced with a lingering spicy finish. Perfect with your next feed of bison in a mushroom cream sauce or a scrumptious duck confit salad.
|Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This blend of 90% Sangiovese/10% Canaiolo is spicy and fruity on the nose and palate. Hints of plum, somewhat lively on the palate. Fairly significant chalky tannins on the finish. Served with Gruyere and Pecorino Toscana cheese per Francois Chartier's recommendation.

|Carpineto Riserva (2012) is a Nobile Di Montepulciano from the Tuscany wine region with soft plum and earthy violet nose. On the palate the wine is tart cherries, dried herbs and toast on the palate. Good acidity and firm tannins on this wine. Decant an hour prior to serving. Drink now and for the next three years. - Community Wine Reviews|
